New scripts about climate change and rice are now online

Farm Radio International’s latest script package looks at Farmers Adapting to Climate Change. You’ll notice that the format of this script package is slightly different from past packages. The first three items in the package are issue packs. Farm Radio issue packs provide basic information on specific topics, as well as suggestions for producing local programming, and a guide to resources for further information. The issue packs in this package deal with the scientific basics of climate change, soil fertility, and water harvesting, respectively. The fourth item in the package presents several story ideas on crop storage. This is followed by three scripts that look at ways small-scale farmers can mitigate and adapt to climatic changes.

Also included in this script package are three new scripts about rice. One suggests ways to plant, harvest, and store rice to ensure a high quality product, while the other two describe techniques for keeping birds away from rice crops. These scripts were produced as part of Farm Radio International’s ongoing collaboration with the Africa Rice Center.
